The Sandflies lovely mascot and Honorary Life Member, Maude, battles on walking around the greens at Cherry Street Sports guided by the mower, roller or Duncans voice.

Breaks your heart knowing she is going blind and she is still as faithful as any dog can get. Nearly as faithful as the loyal Sandflies that rock up every Sunday wanting their Sunday morning fix of Lawn Bowls.

Like clockwork the boys rock up and you can really set your watch to them and you know by now that if someone isn't there by a certain time that there maybe a prob.

But none on Sunday and the winners were Roger the Yank, Paul Buckingham and Kenny Arthur getting up 24 to 16 against Norm Mulholland, Graeme Hair and Johnny Fullerstuff being the Runners up on the day.

Only a few seats left for Woolgoolga on the 13th & 14th of February 2021. Open to Cherry Street Sports and Sandflies members only the sheets was put out last Sunday and just about sold out.

Around $150.00 for lunch and tea on Saturday, the motel, breakfast and BBQ lunch on Sunday plus green fees both days.

Excellent value indeed and all you need on took is some spending money for a few beers I guess. See Bruce if you wish to pay it off. Till next week take care fellas.

Previous report

An excellent Spring Sunday morning and really typical for this time of year plus after all them crook Sundays it was a very pleasant change. Despite having a few of the committee on COVID-19 duty the boys were all very well in great behaviour and getting used to the restrictions such as sitting down while having an ale or two and handshaking is hard not to get used to that's for sure as the boys all used to the handshake after the game and the Aussie way but rules are rules to. Winners were Gary Devlin, Tarts and Johnny Harley getting up 17 to 14 against Johnny Fullerstuff, They Call me Bruce and Franky Reardon. Runners up were John Dennis, Peter Connick and Mal Lowe just going down 19 to 20 against Little Joe, Roger the Yank and Steve Russell. The trip to Woolgoolga sheet is in the Sandflies Pigeon Hole in the red folder at the front door. Cost around $150.00 at this stage till it's all worked out but its not known if its for certain we are going yet but if we are we will be organised that's for sure. Guaranteed a to weekend away and only 24 going, its on the 13th & 14th of February 2021 and it fills fast so a deposit is required to please. If you want to pay it off see Treasurer Bruce Cooper for that thanks. Till next week take care fellas.

This year's combatants were the same players from our 2019 final with Ken Morris and Paul (Pearl) Earl.

Amazingly, this game was almost a carbon copy of last year's nail-biter.

Pearl commenced well taking a 7 nil lead after 5 ends. By the 10th end, Ken had fought back to be 8 all.

For the next 7 ends the lead changed 4 times, then by the 22nd end Ken had a handy 26-17 lead.

Pearl then commenced a brilliant fight back and by end 30 it was 27 all. It seemed all over with Pearl scoring 3 shots on the next 2 ends and holding a very close shot that could have secured him a win. Ken with his final bowl played an inch-perfect shot that trailed the jack for 3 points and a 30/30 score line.

The final end saw Ken draw a back toucher and another close bowl to put the pressure on his opponent.

Pearl duly responded with a dead straight full-blooded drive which hit the intended target but Ken's bowl jammed against the back toucher leaving him the shot very close to the jack.

Paul's final weighted shot just missed the mark to leave Ken a very relieved winner in another fantastic game played in great spirit.

Final Result Ken Morris 31 defeated Paul Earl 30.

Congratulations to both players for a very exciting and entertaining game.
